Actor Gong Hyung-jin will star in the play "Defending the Caveman", which portrays the misunderstandings between men and women.

Known for his roles in major films such as "Love of South and North" and "Liar", the actor will take the role of a caveman who represents ordinary men in this comedy.

The play also marks the 20th anniversary of his acting debut. "This work will be a good opportunity for me to look back on my acting career and provide new thoughts and attitudes to it. I feel a bit burdened because it's a solo show but I will do my best to make the play entertaining for the audience", Kong said.

Kong made his musical debut playing Caeser in "Kleopatra" in May.

The one-man show will utilize stand-up comedy, lecturing and therapy to resolve the conflicts between men and women.

The play was written by American actor Rob Becker and premiered in San Francisco in 1991. The show hit Broadway in 1995 and ran for two years, becoming the longest running solo play.

It has been translated into 16 languages and has attracted more than 8 million viewers in 300 cities worldwide.

The play is directed by Lee Ji-na, who worked on "Hedwig", and "Grease", and local musical production company Show Note will produce it in cooperation with Theater Mogul Productions.

The show will be on stage at Art One Theater in Daehangno, central Seoul, from Dec. 3 to Jan. 31.

Tickets cost 35,000 won. For more information, call (02) 3485-8700.
